International Day Was Exhausting!

Wow – I knew that International Day was going to be a lot of work, but I didn’t realize I’d be too tired to type!  I got home from the “fun” of International Day yesterday, and was too tired to do anything.  So, I apologize for missing Game Night Friday, but I promise to be back with new Board Game suggestions next week.  BTW – If you have a board game lying around that you’d like suggestions for – please feel free to leave me a comment and I’ll add it to our collection soon.  Scroll down for some pictures of the “fun” we had at International Day – it was actually really fun, all of the parents came, my kids remembered their information, did good in their play (Never Cry Croc – the DRC’s version of the Boy Who Cried Wolf) and looked super cute in their outfits.  Then, we ended it all with a rendition of We Are the World.
In addition to the International Day craziness – I’ve spent all day Everything's Intermediate Expo - English Language Learners Webinarputting the finishing touches on my presentation for the Everything’s Intermediate Expo.  That was something else that was “fun”, but a whole lot of work!  Thankfully, it looks like it’s all coming together well and I think I got in all the information I wanted.  If you haven’t bought a ticket yet – you still have 13 days to pre-order and save $5, so grab your ticket soon!
After all the “fun” I’ve had lately, I’d like to spend the next week in bed, but my kids have convinced me to put a few days at the beach, a trip to the zoo and a trip to the movies on our Spring Break itinerary – so I don’t think that will happen!
